If an inmate has fines or are required to pay restitution then they will be subject to garnishment of their commissary/trust account.

We recommend that inmates talk to the counselor at their facility and try to find out. You can also try to make an arrangement so that only a percentage of your commissary funds are taken, instead of all your funds take at one time.
